Retalix Taps S4i Systems for i OS Electronic Document Management
September 29, 2009 Alex Woodie
Retailers that run Retalix‘s i OS-based ERP system will find it easier to transition to paperless forms as the result of a new partnership Retalix has formed with S4i Systems. As part of the deal, Retalix customers will be able to take advantage of well-documented integration between S4i Systems’ i OS document management software and Retalix’s i OS-based suite of enterprise software, Power Enterprise.
Based in Plano, Texas, and Ra’anana, Israel, Retalix develops ERP, CRM, and SCM software used by companies in the retail and distribution industries. Its primary market is serving supermarkets, convenience stores, and foodservice distribution companies. The vendor, which brought in $221 million in revenue each of the last two years, says that more than half of the 50 biggest food retail and distribution companies are its customers.
The deal with Southern California’s S4i Systems will make it easier for Power Enterprise customers to implement S4i’s document distribution, archiving, and retrieval functionality, says Spencer Elliott, president and chief executive officer for S4i Systems.
“We have been working with and listening to Retalix customers for a few years now,” Elliott says in a press release. “Formalizing our relationship with Retalix provides greater synergy between the two organizations, allowing us to meet their customers’ needs …”
S4i already has at least two Retalix customers that have also implemented its document management offerings, including Tankersley Food Service of Arkansas and Stanz Foodservice of Indiana. Both of these companies are profiled in case studies on the S4i Web site.
Retalix also has relationships with several other i OS document management software vendors, including FormsPrint developer Integrated Custom Software and Quadrant Software, both of which are sponsors at Retalix’s annual user conference, called Synergy, scheduled for November. S4i Systems will also be at the event.
